Description: The Floibanen funicular in Bergen is one of Norway's best-known...
The Floibanen funicular in Bergen is one of Norway's best-known attractions. Floibanen can be found in the heart of Bergen, 150 m from Fisketorget - the fish market - and Bryggen wharf, and it takes just 10 minutes to walk to the lower station from where the cruise ships dock along Bryggen. The journey up to Floyen (320 m above sea level) takes 5-8 minutes. The journey is an experience in itself, and at the top you can enjoy fantastic views over Bergen. Check out the view right now from our webcam of Bergen seen from Floyen. There are endless opportunities for walks on Floyen, and you will also find a cafe, restaurant and children's playground. The funicular runs daily all year round from early morning to late evening (check our departure times).

summer solstice cruise

We heard about the lineups to go up there, there was none when we were there. You can get a nice view of the area from there. You can walk around up there, they have some trail.

If you plan to visit in the morning, be prepared for a wait. We passed by at 9:00 a.m. and found the queue out the door and down to the next street. At noon it was not much better. After dinner we walked right in and were at the top in minutes. If you want to stretch your legs, purchase... More

The tram ride up was nice, best views at the top of course with fun troll sculptures to boot. Best part was walking down and looking around the neighborhoods, finding and winding our way through the streets. We recommend not buying the round trip ticket if you're looking for extra adventure :)

Stunning views of Bergen and surrounding fjords. Nice funicular ride up the mountain. It is quite cold and windy so a jacket is recommended. A good zoom is also an advantage.

You need the weather gods to be with you to get a clear day and blue skies to get picture postcard views of Bergen city and the fjords that surround it. And, even if the gods are not with you, losing yourselves on a trek around Mount Floyen is reward by itself, with lakes, birds, cyprus trees and truly Norwegian... More

Before going there, it is important to observe the weather because one should try to avoid foggy and rainy weather. But it takes about 3 minutes ride With Floibanen, and even if there were lots of People there when we were there, we did not have to wait long to take the Floibanen. The view of the city is just...

The short 3-4 minute ride up the funicular saves about 1,000 ft of elevation gained by walking. At the top there are magnificent views of Bergen below and the surrounding area giving a real perspective on the natural harbor and the multitude of islands surrounding Bergen. Enjoy a nice lunch at the restaurant or take one of the many walking... More

Long queues for the funicular. People counted on but not arranged in car so some areas over crowded. View from top great but there is a so so shop/cafe and not enough toilets. There are probably good walks to be had but it was raining so we came home.
